Does anyone know if you still need 6 months clear on your British passport to visit Turkey for a week.

Try renewing it with the post office...they used to offer a quicker service if you paid a small amount extra. Might be worth a try.

my husband just renewed his and took a week to come back. If you put your date of travel on it, they should oblige,

You will be stuck though if it does come back.

If you phone the passport helpline 0800 056 6654 they will advise you, I'm not a 100% sure but you can get a new one in about 2 days if you make an appt and visit their offices, but you must make an appt; and it costs about £100 ish. My daughter had to do it about 2 yrs ago, but she had to go to Liverpool from London to get it done.

useful advice

but £100 sort of negates the cheap flights. Bummer!

Hi,

We flew to Turkey in February and Andrew only had just about 4 months on his passport. We didn't have any problems anywhere.

He renewed it on our return and got it back in less than 3 weeks. But things may be a bit busier now with the holiday season looming.

yes,i had five months left on my passport but had to get a new one.i was annoyed because my new passport was valid from when i applied and not 10 years from when my old one expired. i lost out on nearly five months.

I had to have a new passport because i didn't have the 6 months left when i was traveling, posted off and it was returned within a week, and i ended up with 10years and 5 months.
Suggets you send it 1st class and im sure you will get it back in time.
Is it worth the chance of not being able to fly home? mmmmm May be it is worth that chance!!!
